15 minute dio

Post by ChevyFan on Wed 13 Apr 2011, 10:54 am

Just thought I'd put this up. Wanted a better backdrop for pics of my completed builds (if and when that happens). Knocked this up in about 15 minutes approx.

I printed off the floor/s which I got pics of from the net. Cut up an A4 sized box and cut 2 sides out of it. Stuck white card onto the 2 sides (the piece I had was big enough to cover both sides). Then stuck the floor down. Cut out some pics from magazines that I was about to put out for recycling, and stuck them to the walls.

It looks alright now, and a far better backdrop then my messy workbench etc. I'm now looking at expanding the box a bit to make it easier to put more than one car at a time in there and adding more details as I go.

Anyway, here's some pics with cars that I've posted on here previously (as I haven't seemed to have finished a car in a long time).

checkered tile floor


"slate" floor


wooden floor boards


Still working out which floor to use, and am leaning towards the checkered floor look.

Chequered tiles mate - always looks racy, just like the whole diorama. Great idea but where are the calendar girl pics? Laughing

I like it. I've been meaning to build a quick dio for picture taking, but just haven't yet. I think you have inspired me to start one. Very nice. I like the cars too.

greatjob

Checkered floor for sure. #2 looks like it's in someones kitchen & #3 looks like carpet.

The mobile phone ringtone & girlie pics ads in the back of mags like fast fours are a good source of small stick pics.

Cheers everyone for the feedback and ideas. I thought it looked alright once it was all done in the pics and cost me next to nothing to do.

Now I wanna build a better one, but at least now I have something to use as a backdrop until I can find the time etc. for the next one.
